#169 Big Careers, Small Children: Polly Ogden Duffy – How to Progress a Senior Career in a Male-Dominated Industry & Work Flexibly

Polly Ogden Duffy talks thriving in a male dominated work environment and working flexibly on the Big Careers, Small Children podcast

How can women thrive in a traditionally male-dominated work environment?

Today we welcome to the podcast Polly Ogden Duffy, Managing Director at prime sales and lettings agency John D Wood & Co. 

Polly, who is married with two children, is passionate that women CAN have it all and shares why she believes being ambitious as a working mother is no bad thing.

Having worked her whole career in a traditionally male-dominated environment, Polly shares the advice she would give other women progressing their career, including why you don't necessarily have to 'act like a man' to move into those senior positions.

The property industry, as a whole, is not known for embracing flexible working, but Polly - who works compressed hours - is a huge advocate for working flexibly and encourages her team to bring their whole self to work. She shares how she makes this work.

Finally, Polly shares her tips for surviving and thriving at work on very little sleep during those first few months of parenthood.

We hope you enjoy the conversation.
